The restaurant was packed. We had to wait to the exact recervation time or wait a bit longer for the simple fact that it's a busy restaurant. They do inspection on the tables grill/burners before the next costumer gets seated. Very good. Our server was not attentive. all she did was complaint how busy she was and even forgot to cook our food. My boyfriend had to do it.. luckily other servers would pass by and help with the heat of the burner. She even came by and said .. oh I forgot sorry but you seem to know what you're doing. May I sit down?. I wouldn't pick her for my next happy event. It was my boyfriends birthday and he did basically all. Not the experience I was looking for. The food was great but she needs to be better.

This was our first experience at Ember and it will not be our last. The food was excellent and the service superb!

We had a nice assortment of hibachi-grilled meats, sides, a salad and soup. Our server did the grilling and it was all done at a nice pace, with pleasant conversation. I should note that it was a team effort with all of the servers working in harmony. Very nicely done.

If you have lived and eaten in Korea, the meal may not be exactly to your standards. I had to ask for kimchee which is a standard in Seoul, but it was brought out quickly and with an explanation that it was too intense for most American palates. The meats were very high quality and tasty. Our server recommended one upgrade and that was for Wagyu prime rib--worth every penny!

All of the servers were masked and social distancing was practiced. I think I noted an air filtration system as well. Nice.

We will be back.

The restaurant was fantastic and enjoyable. Our burner was not working and then ran out of gas. It took a long time to cook our food and we had to wait to get help when it would go out.

Service was outstanding. Chris was very attentive and helpful during our first time there. The owner and floor manager also stopped by and were also very informative and helpful. Food was outstanding and they give you a ton of it. Come hungry. We will be back.

The food was horrible. Did not enjoy this at all. I ordered the Zabuton steak and it was chewy. My daughter and her husband both ordered the filet mignon and it was not filet mignon.

We were in town for my bday and chose Ember day of. We also chose the last reservation of the night. Everyone was extremely nice and kind. We didn't feel rushed despite being the last guest of the night and they even sang happy birthday to me even though it was closing time! Will return the next time I'm in town!

Always a fun experience and great food. This is the first time that we elected as a family to do the cooking at the table ourselves. We proved to ourselves that we can handle it and we didn't ruin a thing...or burn the building down.

My husband and I love Ember! The staff is amazing - very knowledgeable, kind, and attentive. The food is terrific - very authentic and worth every penny. During our most recent visit, the owner, Jack, surprised us by cooking for us! It was great getting to know him and learn more about his wonderful restaurant. I highly recommend Ember if you haven’t tried it already!!

Clean modern environment, good food, and excellent service made for a very good experience. The choice of relatively loud and crude hip-hop music was a bit distracting during our meal-even for our 16 year old.

Based on reviews online we decided to give this place a shot, and glad we did. The food was amazing, the service was outstanding, and the overall experience was fantastic. Definitely not a place for a quick meal, this truly is a dining experience, and you have to allow time for that.

Our server was overwhelmed. He was very informative, but he did not write anything down. Our appetizer was wrong, our sushi was wrong, our meal had 5 components to it and the main part was burnt due to him getting busy and not coming back to us. Our drink refills took over 30 minutes. We were there over 3 hours. I know it is an experience, but we did not get even 1 apology from management. Just a "whoops, I got a little busy there" from the server. We will not return, nor recommend this place to anyone unless they have half a day tp spend there

It was amazing! Our server Kiki was great! She give us her recommendations on drinks, food, and how to use the grill while I was on my date. It was just the best I had in a very long time. The overall experience was great and definitely I will come back and recommend people to come to the restaurant to try out new food and enjoy the experience!

Second time to Embers, and I got to say it didn't let me down. Previously, i was solo but have been trying to get my gf to enjoy this wonderful spot. Plans got canceled with friends so I changed the location and kept date night alive. Only down side is the bar could use some help with turn overtime with mixed drinks. When you drink like we do.... you respect a fast bar service. otherwise, food is authentic, fresh, and perfectly prepared {ours in front of us at the table}. Just order your drinks half way through them and you will be right as rain.

On this visit we shared sushi and a rice bowl with beef bulkugle. Not sure how it’s spelled! The sushi fish was so fresh and yummy. The portions were very generous. Impressive! The rice bowl was completely delicious as well. I am going to go back here a bunch!

The food was good but not great, We enjoyed the table grill concept.
Before we even got inside the restaurant we heard very loud electronic music which turned my husband off.It went on throughout the entire meal and decidedly affected our enjoyment of the dining experience.
